What Sets Penn's Neuro-Ophthalmology Group Apart?
Neuro-ophthalmology at Penn is unique because of our comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment. To ensure a thorough evaluation, our fellowship-trained specialists work closely with experts in other disciplines closely allied to neuro-ophthalmology, including neurosurgery, otorhinolaryngology, and neuroradiology. State-of-the-art neuro-imaging provides accurate diagnosis for a full range of neuro-ophthalmologic problems.
Our team of specialists evaluate and treat patients with vision loss and eye movement disorders resulting from a variety of neurological disorders. We also treat patients with poorly-defined visual symptoms, many of which remain unresolved despite previous ophthalmic and neurologic evaluations. The program includes evaluation and treatment for:
Ischemic optic neuropathy
Other optic nerve problems
Unexplained vision loss
Visual field defects
Migraine and related visual complaints
Optic disc swelling
Pseudotumor cerebri syndrome
Abnormal eye movements (ophthalmoparesis or nystagmus)
